Long Arm Machine Quilting Service

If you are like most quilters, you love to piece those quilt tops but are then faced with the dilemma of how to handle that large quilt in the small home sewing machine.  Machine quilting has become very popular in today's busy world.  Machine quilting is as durable as it is beautiful.  We quilt on a 14ft and two 12ft, Innova 26 with Mach3 computerization. We do edge to edge quilting with the wide range of beautiful patterns to choose from and with your choice of thread color that will give you a beautiful finish to your work. Edge to Edge quilting is stitched from one side of the quilt to the other and does not treat borders as a separate piece.  Most of our finished quilts that are for sale on this site have been quilted "edge to edge". 

Our turn around time is normally 6 weeks.  From October 1st to January 1st please plan on an 8 week turn around due to the holiday rush period.  This year the last order date for Christmas delivery is 11/1/2024.  If you are ordering binding service please add an additional 4 weeks to your delivery time.  If you need your quilt done by a certain time frame just let us know and often we are able to support rush requests. 

Pricing for edge to edge quilting is based on the actual measurements of your quilt top, multiply the length by the width of your quilt to calculate the square inches of your quilt to determine which service to add to your order. 

If you have an over sized king size quilt (over 13,000 square inches) or if you are looking for custom quilting instead of an edge to edge treatment, please call or email for a quote prior to placing your order.
